I'm on day three of a new meditation regimen. My doctor recommended it, and a little web research shows that basically 100% of neuroscientists, psychologists, and other health care providers agree that meditation is beneficial for all aspects of well-being.

Unlike the juice cleanse that I'm also considering, this is an easy and uncomplicated decision.

A friend recommended an app called Headspace. All you have to do is download the app, and you get a free ten-day programme. They spell it that way because they're from the UK. On the recordings, Andy, a former monk, leads you reassuringly through beginners' meditations.

The only problem I can forsee with my new endeavor is that I'm becoming obsessed with the benefits of meditation. I think that's kind of counter to the goal of freeing my mind. I'll keep you posted.
